Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

While we may not be actually flat broke, we all still are looking for the cheapest and most effective way’s to market our business. This being said, there are actually free way’s to market your business, that’s right, absolutely free!

Free classified ads. Do some google searching to see what kind of free classifieds you can come up with for your area. One you may want to try is craigslist, which receives a lot of volume.

Provide the best customer service you can. This is what we call “word of mouth” advertising in the long run. The better the service you provide to your existing customers, the more people they will talk to about your company.

Maximize Your Mailing List. What, don’t have a mailing list?  Start collecting customer information so you can get one!  Use this mailing list to push out information about new products or services, give a special deal to your mailing list, share information with them, etc.”, recently suggested on SmallBizBee.

What free advertising do you know of for businesses?
